Review:

`Augoustinos and Walker point out the limitations of an individual level approach to social cognition and set out to expand it by integrating it with the European approach that emphasizes the roles of group membership and socially shared beliefs in shaping social cognition... I found the book to be informative and useful; it has, for example, provided me with several new ideas for revising the social cognition segment of my introductory social psychology course. Professionals in others areas of psychology that draw on the social cognitive perspective, such as clinical, health and sports psychology, will find it equally useful. As a textbook, it makes an excellent [contribution] by providing a critical viewpoint on some aspects of traditional social cognition theory and research, by introducing new perspectives on social cognition, and by demonstrating the integration of the individual- and group-level approaches to studying social cognition′ - Contemporary Psychology
